A question about graduate entry! Watch

Report Thread starter 5 years ago
I have 3 A levels in chemistry, french and history and got A*A*A* in one sitting (I also have an A in maths but I retook 4 out of 6 modules!). I have a degree in French and Italian (first).

would I have a good chance of being accepted onto a graduate medicine course with the required amount of work experience and GAMSAT success? Is it rare for an arts student to be accepted?

in case you're wondering, the reason I didn't do undergrad medicine was because I was ill during sixth form and I had a pretty rough time.

i also have a B at AS biology and 10 A*s at GCSE.

For graduate entry they generally don't look at your A level grades as far as I'm aware; so long as you have some background in chemistry they're happy. They're just interested in your degree and your experiences. Make sure you get some work experience lined up. You will be a bit restricted by where you can apply as you didn't do a science degree, but there are still places that will accept any degree (providing you achieved a 2:1 or higher); check the TSR wiki for that.
